11-year-old Harper Gruzins, the Coppell, Texas "singer-songwriter," who gave Christina Aguilera a run for her money with a truly phenomenal butchering of the National Anthem during Saturday's Major League Soccer match between Dallas and LA tried to blame vuvuzelas for her terrible, terrible performance, while her mom held technical difficulties responsible.

But even the most unlikely excuse in the world could make up for Gruzins' Roseanne-esque rendition of the "The Star-Spangled Banner," which is why the musical prodigy, who, her website claims, "is able to write songs that seem amazingly deep for her age," put her mouth where her alleged ability to sing is, and tried again.

Okay, so it's no Marvin Gaye at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game, but, then again, nothing is.
